Day dresses for summer

We’ve rounded up some of our fave day dresses that you can easily wear with trainers, sandals chunky boots, and swap out for mules or heels for a fancier feel. Think floaty but flattering, to keep you cool on those warm Summer afternoons.

Get scrolling to discover our collection of daytime summer dresses, for an unstructured and casual vibe. Forget the bodycons and tight skirts, opt for smock dresses that you can float around in all summer long.

Denim smock dresses

You can’t go wrong with a denim smock dress. Denim is our day one and basically goes with anything. Throw on a leather jacket, or be brave and double up with a denim jacket.

Subtle stripes

If you aren’t about the bold patterns, opt for subtle stripes and go big on the accessories. Make your outfit super Summer-y with a floppy hat, straw bag and platform sandals. Team with an easy leather or denim jacket for the evening.

Little black dress

Who said that your LBD had to be fitted and dressy? Tone it down with a black shift dress. Layer on some gold jewellery or keep it super simple with gold earrings and a statement sandal.

Yellow gingham

Nothing says ‘Summer picnic’ like a little bit of gingham. Don’t be afraid to mix and match pastel shades for a daytime look. Throw on a pair of super chunky flatforms, for a BBQ outfit that will look cute on your feed as well as in real life.
